Hey all,

I want to start off by saying that I am currently a max user , and I really like the program, however alot of tutorials are done in Maya and I find that they use alot of tools wich I would find really handy.

So this made me wonder if I would keep max or switch to maya?, I mean is this a personal opinion or does anybody has some strong arguments to make this choice easier ?

Thanks in advance :D

Do both of them. Your be better prepared in going into the game industry if you know how to work with both. I know a lot about Maya and the basics of 3Ds max.

Thanks for the respone

Yeah, I am pretty much the opposite ;p, basics of maya and a little more advanced stuff in max, But maya got some really awesome tools wich would speed up my entire workflow, so I was wondering if it was a good choice to do some more stuff in maya and discard 3ds max for a while.

But I have no idea wich is better or why , really difficult ;p

So what do you prefer max or maya?

pick one to begin with - max is a good one to start with.

there are lots of tutorials available and remember to use F1 help, to get free explanations of anything in max

good lick and post questions if you get stuck...

I like both. Maya is good and I can work with the UI a lot better. 3Ds Max is good to as I like the software render on it as I find it a lot neater than Maya's and 3Ds has more modding tools.
